Rock Cakes

When I think of Harry Potter themed food, I think of Butterbeer. Not sure why. I’m not that big a fan of butter.

But after Butterbeer it’s Hagrid’s Rock Cakes. So I made it a priority to find a recipe for Miss15’s Potter party.

This one was a winner. Looked the part but no one needed to break a tooth biting into them.

Bought everything at Woolies (searching out their good value brand – W on a green background) and have enough left over to make another four batches.

Won’t need a remembrall to remind me to do that. Not with my five kids.

You will need:

2 cups self raising flour

pinch of salt

120gms butter

½ cup raw sugar

1 cup mixed dried fruit

1 egg, beaten

2 tablespoons milk

¼ cup orange juice

  1. Preheat oven to 220 degrees.
  2. Combine flour and salt.
  3. Whisk in the butter.
  4. Add sugar & dried fruit, mixing well.
  5. Fold the egg into the mixture, then add the milk and juice to finish off your dough.
  6. Spoon lumps of mixture onto a greased baking tray and slip into the oven for 15 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool before letting them put a spell on your kids.

Raising a family on little more than laughs

This is not  a sponsored post although I’ve included a link for those pumpkin seeds because we’ve been working with Woolworths a lot this year and I think their baking aisle is awesome
